Takotavia Octafuzz

-What is Takotavia?-
Tako is the Japanese word for octopus. I mixed Tako and Octavia. That is Takotavia.

Takotavia is based on the legendary Tycobrahe Octavia pedal. I wanted to retain the maximum appeal of the original's unique upper octave sound and distinctive, unstable tone, so I made few changes to the original circuit. I have modified it slightly to my taste in sound. I have changed the circuit only a little but you can feel the Lemon & Ginger character.

I like the sound of it with the "boost" turned down, combined with other overdrive pedals or fuzz pedals.Takotavia is not a stand-alone pedal, it is a combination of other pedals that brings out the best performance. I hope you will find the best combination of the two.

With battery-powered pedals, you had to unplug the pedal's input jack every time you finished playing to conserve battery power. However, Takotavia turns off the battery by setting the "VOLUME" to 0. It does the same thing as when the input jack is unplugged. You are now able to reduce battery consumption without cumbersome operation.

I will repair the pedal free of charge within 6 months from the date of purchase. However, you will be responsible for the return shipping costs of the pedal. If you receive the pedal within one week of receipt, I will also pay for the return shipping.
